Urban Transport without the hot air : Volume 1: Sustainable solutions for UK cities Paperback / softback

Part of the without the hot air series

Description

The UK population will reach 70 million by 2027. How will all these people get around? Is building more, wider roads really the solution? In this book, Steve Melia: dispels long-standing transport myths; looks at the successes of London and other UK and continental cities in providing 21st century transport; and suggests solutions for a sustainable future. By drawing on the experience of London, Bristol, Cambridge and other European towns, we can have cleaner and more pleasant places to live, and a more sustainable economy.

The book is accessibly written, and is a must-read for the interested lay person as well as those involved in transport and urban planning. In Volume 2, (forthcoming) Alan Cunningham considers the situation and solutions for the USA.

Each volume can be read alone, or they can be read together to look at the wider global context.
